Termites

Termites

Termites cause millions of dollars’ worth of damage every year to home and property which is not covered by insurance. For most people, their house is their biggest asset, so it is important to protect it from potential damage. Termites attack soft wood, hard wood, plaster, timber furniture etc, with attacks coming from Subterranean Termites (White Ants).

If you think you might have termites or come across a termite nest around your home, the most important thing is not to disturb them or self-treat. It is best to leave it to the professionals as you could push them to other areas of the property, and they could go undetected.

Rodents

The three most common types of rodent found around the home are the House Mouse, Norway rat and Roof rat. Rats and mice are competent climbers and can scale rough walls, pipe work, trees and vines. They are mainly nocturnal but can be seen during the day if food is scarce or there is low risk of danger.

Rodents constantly gnaw on a variety of materials around the home including electrical wires and cables, parts of equipment and machinery, door frames, pipes and much more. This can cause a great deal of damage including fire from damaged wires and become very costly. Rodents may also carry and transmit many diseases to humans by contaminating food and through direct contact with droppings and urine.

The Norway rat has 5-6 litters per year with an average of 8-10 babies per litter, the roof rat has 4-5 litters per year with an average of 6-8 babies per litter and the house mouse can have up to 6-10 litters per year with an average of 5-6 babies per litter.
